“GREAT SEA VIEW BUT THE OVERALL SERVICE IS NOT OF A 4STAR HOTEL”
Reviewed 28 June 2011

The location is the best. You can access the old town, shops, beach, casino, everything is within a walking distance. You can see and hear the sea from your balcony and swim just in 2 seconds! The highest the floor, the less noise you get from the street and the beach. Definitely the greatest location to enjoy the island!
Now apart from the location, I was not satisfied by the hotel services and their politeness. The staff in the reception was not helpful and not polite at all.
Although they say the internet is free, I never managed to get access. I could navigate from my cell while I was on the beach using others free wi fi but back to the hotel it never worked. I mentioned the problem to the reception, she told me that they would solve the technical problem but they never did.
The cleaning was awful. They only come to clean every 2 days and only until 14:30. Because of their fault they didn’t come to our room for 2 consecutive days and left us with no toiled paper! I had to argue with the reception in order to send somebody to clean the mess and change the garbage!
Another great problem was with the bathroom where there was no window and no ventilation at all! That means that if you wanted to use it you really had a problem with the smells..... Furthermore the water after 8pm was never too hot.
When we left the room they didn’t even ask me if was satisfied….

Room Tip: Definetely ask for a sea view room

Staying at the Aquarium View Hotel was a very nice experience. The view is actually very fine, because the location very close to the northern tip of Rhodes is just great. Just a few steps and you are on the Elli beach. The rooms are nice and comfortable with free air condition, the breakfast is very good, and you are not really bothered by traffic noise, and you are also away from the night life, that some (young) people apparently prefer to a good holiday with all sorts of pleasures in the day time!

Spent one week with two teenagers (17 yrs). The location could not have been better. Close to shopping, close to night clubs, easy to get a taxi, or car rental. Grocery store and pharmacie near by, One side of town is windy, the other, not as much. We were on the side that was not so windy. The beach is a meer 50 feet from the hotel. Lots and lots of beach chairs/umbrellas to rent (4 E per day and free if you go on one of the boat rides before lunch. By boat rides I mean parasailing, ringos etc. These are located right in front of the hotel on the beach,) The hotel was clean and, as said before, the staff were wonderful. The rooms, however, left alot to be desired. One-person only bathrooms. And barely one person. Our bathroom door would not open all the way because of the toilet. The showerhead was practically useless. You could feel the springs in the bed. Both my husband and son nearly knocked themselves out while bending over sitting on the toilet and hitting their heads on the sink! The hotel is quite run down but I stress, it is clean. This is a fabulous hotel if you are on a budget. Although, there are other hotels in the area (even the Aqurium sister hotel next door) that are much nicer and not too much more money. If money really is an important factor, stay at Aquarium. Just don't have high expectations for decor and amenities. Think of it as a place to sleep only. Have fun!

I stayed at the Aquarium (ex-Siravast) for a week around Aug '08.
The hotel is pretty old and needs a bit of a renewal -but- it's clean, the rooms are pretty spacious, the breakfast is ok and the view was EXCELLENT. (ask for a room on the east side, it's less windy and has a better view)

It's located on the beach on the northern peak of the city (of the island actually) opposite the (guess it..) aquarium and about 100m from the casino. Parking is easy in the area.
The beach underneath is really nice, more clean than I thought a city beach would be and really lively.
It's about 15-20 min walk to the old town but dont let that put you off.
I paid about 65eur/double room w/seaview which is actually a bargain since hotels near may charge double or more.

All in all, it's not a bad choice if you can find it in a good price.
I certainly enjoyed my stay and might try it again when in Rhodes!

This hotel has a fantastic location i Rhodos,Greate beaches just outside the door.
We booked with seaview and thats recomended.

Acyually thats the only thing we recomend with this hotel,it`s not a 4 star hotel at all its completley run down and need urgently a total makeover. Furniture and and all interior are from mid 70`s.
Bed in our room was hard as plywood and also furniture in our room was dirty and full of satins.
Bed linnen was changed every day together with towels.
Air conditon worked wery good:-)

We can write a lot about this hotel,but there are other hotels near by and they are mutch better with the same location.

Take a look at the pictures and you can decide if you want to stay at this run down 4 star hotel.....

This delightful location couldn't be more convenient for the beach. Short walk (15-20 mins) to the Old Town citadel area which is full of quaint alleyways dating back to Byzantine times. Don't go expecting a boutique flash city hotel but it is very clean, the rooms are spacious and the staff are helpful and friendly (not batting an eyelid when we asked to change rooms to the other side of the hotel as the first room was too near the lift) The receptionist gave us the keys to 2 alternative rooms one of which had a double bed (result!) as most rooms are twin bedded only. There is access to the swimming pool at the neighbouring Cactus Hotel which was pleasant if a little busy. We found the breakfast to be more than adequate and the terrace was charming - a sunny spot from which to watch the world go by (mostly Scandanavian and German tourists). We would recommend the Boudoir restaurant for its modern decor, generous portions and Europop (!) and Hatzikelis Fish Taverna for authentic Greek seafood dishes, pleasant setting and unusual octopus washing-line.

We stayed a week at this hotel. The guests were mostly Scandinavian. The breakfast was fine. Excellent if you get a table outside. The staff was very friendly. The room was good. Highly recommend booking a room with a seaview for it is certainly worth the extra cost. The view was fabulous! The location could not have been better. That peninsula is definately the place to be in Rhodes! Absolutely fantastic location. You are close to a lovely beach yet just a short walk from the most interesting sites in Rhodes. Highly recommend Mike's bar around the corner!
And the Olive resteraunt around the back of the hotel.

Only negative thing was the last night we stayed at this hotel they were trying out new lights on the balconies. This was NOT a good idea as these lights were too bright so they disturbed our sleep. Not sure if they kept these lights or not. Hopefully not as it really made a big difference as to whether I would return to that hotel or not but I would definately return to that area if not at the Siravast then another hotel next store.
